SOUGHT-AFTER LOCATION, SPACE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE – AND SCOPE FOR EVEN MORE
What a joy to come home along a tree-lined avenue wending its way past horse fields to your own super spot on this exclusive turn-of-the-century development in the popular North Bedfordshire village of Bromham. A lovely 4-bedroom, detached home with hydrangea-clad double garage, plenty of driveway parking, a beautiful spring-blossoming cherry tree welcoming you at the front, a delightfully peaceful garden with wonderful view at the back. Space for family, space for work, space to enjoy life.
Set on a no through road, on land that once belonged to Bromham House, a major country estate, the air is more likely to be filled with birdsong issuing from ancient, protected trees, than from passing traffic. The village itself, only a cycle ride away from the county town, with its outstanding Harpur Trust private schools and fast trains to London and elsewhere, has every facility a family could need: Budgens store, surgery, dog-friendly pubs, and primary school, to name but a few. Highly thought of secondary schools are a short hop away.
Explore Bromham’s fascinating heritage, taking in the 11th century church, the river Great Ouse, Bromham Mill, the wildlife and nature conservation park, and ancient woodland, not to mention a Roman road. Children’s playing fields and park are yards away from the house. A wonderfully safe family setting.
A lovely garden on two levels. Attractive decking near the house combines with lawn and borders stocked with pretty planting, a secluded sitting area to the side, with both sunny and shady times. Below, under a magnificent horse chestnut’s canopy, grass to kick a ball – and to play conkers.
Inside, no need to worry about dirty boots following a river walk. Expensive Amtico flooring takes care of that. Relax while the red wine flows at that summer party as guests mill in and out through French doors flung open to outside from the garden room which, in turn, leads through fully-glazed double doors to the spacious hall.
Use the garden room for dining, as it was intended, or as currently, a study – be careful about being distracted by the lovely outlook though. The kitchen has its own dining/breakfast area separated by peninsular seating; the wine rack is a nice touch. Like the kitchen, the sitting room stretches from front to back and is flooded with light - a feature of the house.
Climb the stylish, glass-sided, staircase to lovely bedrooms, all with super views. This is a home filled with happiness and light. A home, though, where value can be added if you wish: maybe a rear extension, a games room, fully-equipped office, or something more ambitious for the garage. Or enjoy this attractive family home just as it is.
